Dream Essays started helping students with schoolwork in 1998, and their website looks like it hasn’t been updated since. I decided to give them a chance because the company has been around for so long and is still kicking. But is Dream Essays scam? Read the full review or skip to the pros and cons at the bottom to find out.
Though Dream Essays presents an image of an academic writing company, their list of services includes unconventional offers, such as copywriting, web content, and even SEO articles. The company can also create a business plan or conduct SWOT and strategic analysis. More traditional items, including essays, case studies, reports, and theses are available as well. Their range of services is impressive, but does it make Dream Essays reliable? I had severe doubts even before getting my essay from this company.
Despite the outdated feel of the website, Dream Essays prices are way ahead of many other companies. The cheapest service I could find was editing or proofreading ($9.95 per page on a 7-day deadline). The lack of longer deadline options might be the reason for high rates. Even so, when I ordered a three-page sophomore-level essay on a 5-day deadline, it cost me nearly $70. Of course, I looked for a Dream Essays discount code, but couldn’t find a valid one. However, I found a loyalty program that would have landed me a 5% discount after I’d paid $500. You’ll soon find out why I will never get a chance to use this discount.
I would love to tell you everything about Dream Essays rating and customer feedback, but I can’t. The Dream Essays Reddit search results had nothing to do with the company. When I checked Trustpilot and SiteJabber, I found no Dream Essays reviews. This seems strange for a company that has been operating over two decades. To be fair, there are lots of client testimonials on the website, but they come with no dates and other specifics. I couldn’t be sure how old or new those reviews were.
I talked to Kevin about the differences between fixed and flexible deadlines in the order form. He responded within a minute and was friendly, but not very informative. I asked multiple questions about deadline extensions and late deliveries. Some of Kevin’s answers were very vague, though he tried to reassure me the order would be finished on time.
Is Dream Essays legit? Their refund policy answered the question for me. According to Terms of Service, “minor” delays and content problems are not enough to justify a refund. Instead, the company will offer discounts and other ways to reimburse you. However, there is no indication who decides whether the problems are minor or major. If you can prove your order is way past small corrections, you will have to suffer through at least five rounds of revision before you can even think of filing a refund claim.
The order form looks and feels as dated and tired as the whole Dream Essays website. Most fields are standard, such as the deadline, the number of pages, paper type, topic, and academic level. The one field that nearly made me reconsider was “How flexible is your deadline?” that offered two options: “absolutely fixed” and “more or less flexible.” It made wonder how often the company delivered orders late to come up with such a question and how late those deliveries could be. Is Dream Essays safe? Their affinity for flexible deadlines suggests otherwise.
The writer jumped right into the middle of the argument from the first sentence which would have been great if their reasoning made even a little sense. I had to read every paragraph twice to get an idea of what the writer wanted to say, and even then, I could not be 100% sure. The typos and missing commas didn’t help either. It felt like the writer snatched random ideas from three sources and took all of five minutes to smash them together into a paper. At first, I thought there had been a mistake, and I got a draft, but the writer assured me that was the finished product. It was not worth the seventy dollars I had paid.
I was disappointed by the lack of additional features on offer. Considering the lack of reviews and suspicious money-back policy, I would have preferred to get a Dream Essays plagiarism report with my essay. However, the only thing I could find was a chance to specify preferred writers for a 5% surcharge. At the same time, I could add writers I did not want to work on my paper for free. As it was my first (and last) order, I didn’t make use of either of these options.
Dream Essays was a nightmare from start to finish, and I would have never ordered anything from them, had I still been in school. If you skimmed my Dream Essays review and went straight for the verdict, here are some highlights for you:
